Artist's Description

Market crosses are fairly common in historic towns and cities in Britain, and occasionally they are named for the specific trade that was focused in or around them. This one in Salisbury, Wiltshire, was presumably the hub of business for traders in chickens, ducks and eggs…

The structure is a roofed or sheltered “cross” built in the 15th century with elements of both the Decorated and subsequent Perpendicular styles of Gothic architecture.

The Poultry Cross is protected as a Grade 1 listed building and preserved as an historic monument . It is occasionally still used for special market days, but usually serves as a convenient landmark and a meeting place.
